Hey, I’m Raff Marioni and I’m proud to be your Students’ Union President for the 2018/19 academic year. My role is all about representing the student voice to the University, community and media; with the ultimate goal of ensuring your interests and needs are always taken into account.
As well as this, I’m committed to achieving various goals which I set out on my manifesto upon election. Reducing everyday costs, revitalising the social side of the Students’ Union, improving library services and introducing free campus-wide sanitary items are just some of my plans for the year. These aim to tackle the issues students care about, making campus fairer, more affordable and more positive.
Continually improving, and engaging with, the student experience is at the heart of what we do at the Union. I encourage any student to come to my office on the ground floor of the Students’ Union or contact me with any suggestions/ideas on how we can make everyone’s time at Newcastle the best it can possibly be.
